Not soon after, Obuya joined the players' strike and left England to play club cricket for South Africa. However, he struggled with his form with the ball. He also travelled to Australia to train with spin-blowing coach Terry Jenner in 2005 but did not improve. Hence, he decided to concentrate full-time on developing his batting skills becoming a specialist batsman since then.
After a dismal performance in the 2011 World Cup, the then Kenyan captain Jimmy Kamande was replaced by Collins Obuya. Since then, he has led Kenya to several impressive victories.
In November 2013, Obuya was suspended for 2 matches following an altercation with team-mate Irfan Karim and Rakep Patel captained the team in his absence. Obuya later resigned from the post in December 2013 prompting Cricket Kenya to give the permanent job to Rakep Patel.
